This is quite good
After more than 13 years of listening to various genres of podcasts, this is still the one of the best I've ever heard.

janlappa, I have the same problem if I click on any of the mp3 options on this or any other Archive page - another window opens and the file will only play in the embedded player. It won't allow me to save it, even after I change the Firefox settings: Tools>Options>Applications>change all the Content Types with MP3 in the name to Save File.
It DOES allow me to change other content types (M3U, Ogg Vorbis) from playing to saving or vice versa. I don't know why MP3 is different. Try this instead. Click on the ZIP option instead. That should allow you to save instead of play.
Unfortunately, for some Archive pages, I have to save the whole zip file, extract what I want, then delete what I don't want instead of only saving what I wanted to begin with. Same thing happens in Internet Explorer. Can anyone else shed some light on this?

Great quality! It says "download options" however, and I can't seem to donwload it - just starts playing it. Was hoping to burn it on a cd for my dad.

This was the very thing I was looking for, thankyou so much for uploading this, this gave me a Really good Retro-Perspective of the '30, and 60 minutes of my life well spend.
It seems totally incredible that this transmission made the entire nation panic, yet I'm not surprised once done hearing it.
Perfect Sound Quality, Good Amusement, Draws Your Attetion, Very Interresting, Completely worth the time Spend.

My two cents
The audio quality of this mp3 is perfect. The actual program content was so captivating, I don't recommend trying to listen in your car. This will dominate your attention.
I was planning to test it to see if it would play, and I ended up taking in the entire hour. It stays on my mp3 player now and every once and again I dig it up.
I listen to a lot of old time radio and I have a fair idea of what it may have sounded like to listen to the news in 1938. I'm stunned how close this sounds (most of it) to a news broadcast. I totally understand the mass panic that went along with this programs original airing.
No words can describe this experience. You must listen.

This is brilliant theatre. You have to listen.

Very Good Quality
I just had to comment that this is a very good quality mp3 encode of this classic broadcast. Also, I believe this is the complete original, with no new material added. Thank you for uploading this.
